    Question command line scanning of images

    I can't find a command line scan tool that has a few basic options like file format, compression strength, etc.
    Anyrecommendations other than scanimage or hp-scan?

    Here's what I've found so far, and for comparison a few GUI tools I tested:

    CL:
    -scanimage:
    20 sec to scan my sample at 300dpi.
    No matter what I do, the files are HUGE, my sample 300dpi in tiff is saved as a 35MB file! Same for JPEG with full compression.
    manpage and -h are confusing stating only outputs available are tiff and pnm, yet it seems to acccept jpeg.

    -hp-scan:
    37 sec to scan my sample at 300dpi
    Sample 300dpi in JPEG is 750KB.
    No control of JPEG quality.

    GUI:
    -simplescan:
    20 sec to scan my sample at 300dpi.
    File type/size is JPEG/1.6MB.
    Can't tell from looking at processes what options simplescan is using to scan.

    -xsane:
    16 sec to scan my sampel at 300dpi.
    File type/size is JPEG/573KB
    Can't tell from looking at processes what options xsane is using to scan.
